I first came across London-based firm Atelier Ten in graduate school. Our newest, flashiest building had just opened and Atelier Ten, in close collaboration with Hopkins Architects and Centerbrook Architects, did the environmental engineering and design.
Atelier Ten defines itself as an environmental design consultancy and building services engineering group. Their focus is on high performance – and high design. Their weapons? Improved energy efficiency, water conservation, visual and thermal comfort, material selection and reduced carbon emissions. I like them because they take gorgeous spaces and turn them into sleek, impressive structures that nestle seamlessly, and even benefit, the natural spaces around them.
They’ve worked with some of the best architects to create some of the coolest spaces on the planet – from Singapore to London to Philly. Check out some of my favorites below, and visit their website for all the specs.
